25 April, 2018 - UCL CDCN Seminar: 'Development of memory and spatial circuits in the rat'

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Speaker: Dr Francesca Cacucci, UCL GOS Institute of Child Health “'Development of memory and spatial circuits in the rat” Abstract: Since the seminal discovery made by John O’Keefe in the 1970s, that single hippocampal pyramidal neurons emit spikes when a rat is traversing a restricted portion of space (the cell’s place field), a host of spatial responses has been uncovered in the hippocampal formation and beyond. We now know that these spatial networks contain neurons encoding the current heading of the animal (head direction cells), its current location (place cells), cells encoding prominent boundaries located at specific directions from the animal (boundary cells) and distance travelled (grid cells). Together, these spatial responses are thought to constitute a neural map that the organism can use to know where it is and to navigate towards goal locations....

1 May, 2018 - Experimental Psychology Seminar: “The Toolkit for Building Better Learners”

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Veronica Yan, University of Texas Abstract: Given that the majority of learning takes place in the learners’ own hands, it is important that we understand how to manage our own learning effectively and efficiently. Despite being engaged in learning throughout our lives, research shows that our intuitions about how we learn are oftentimes exactly wrong, leading us to choose suboptimal learning strategies over more effective and efficient ones. While intuitions tell us that we should find strategies that make learning feel easy, the most effective study strategies are in fact the ones that introduce challenges to the learner and engage them more effortfully (aka “desirable difficulties”). Being an effective, self-regulated learner therefore not only requires knowing the right toolset of strategies to use, but also requires holding the right mindsets to appreciate that difficulty is important and integral to the process of learning.

2 May, 2018 - Collaboration, recognition, and leadership: How to succeed in Team Science

Time: -

Succeeding in Team Science will be chaired by Professor George Davey Smith FMedSci, Director of the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit and Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the University of Bristol. Professor Eleftheria Zeggini, Group Leader at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, will be delivering the keynote speech. Two years ago, the Academy of Medical Sciences published a report on ‘Team Science’; output-focused research involving two or more research groups. The report highlighted the increase in popularity and success of team science as researchers seek to solve global challenges to realise economic and societal benefits, whilst also highlighting some of the challenges faced. Succeeding in Team Science is a responsive career development event designed to enable biomedical and health researchers to seize opportunities to work collaboratively, through workshops, discussion and presentations of the latest team science research.

Time: 17:30:00 - 18:30:00

Speaker: Dr Rebecca Fisher, University of Nottingham Followed by refreshments. No registration required – please just come along. About this lecture: Implementation research investigates why interventions found to be effective in clinical trials often fail to be successfully translated into the care that patients receive. This talk will discuss what ‘implementation’ means, drawing on theoretical frameworks that can be used to investigate this translational gap. Findings will be presented from research investigating Early Supported Discharge, a home-based rehabilitation intervention, delivered by a stroke specialist multidisciplinary team. The aim will be to show how implementation research can identify ways to facilitate evidence based practice and ensure research findings actually improve the care that patients receive.

Time: -

Registration is now open for the Grid Cell Meeting on May 21st & 22nd at The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre. Entorhinal grid cells express spatially regular firing patterns, thought to support self-localisation and navigation. Recent advances suggest grid representations may generalise to non-spatial domains; providing a mechanism for organising conceptual knowledge. Via talks, posters and data blitz sessions this two day meeting will bring together experimenters and theoreticians to discuss the latest developments in the grid cell field relating to both spatial and non-spatial coding. Only a limited number of places and posters boards are available. Register to express your interest in attending and to indicate if you would like to present a poster. A limited number of travel awards will be available for Early Career Researchers presenting a poster. If you would like to be considered for an award please indicate this during the registration process.
